From current term, we have started to provide “Rural Skills”, a revamped webinar that focuses on wide-ranging procedures which are necessary for GP in the rural areas or remote islands, as one of our regular monthly programs.
This time, we set the following theme for the first lecture: Daily Clinical Practice and Dermatology. And, we invited two graduates of the RGPJ and one veteran dermatologist to it as guest lecturers and supervisor, respectively.
In the lecture, the graduates dealt with a lot of cases that they had actually faced with during the days of training as an RGPJ registrar and shared many useful tips on those with the registrars using a variety of visual aids.
Just for your information, the gist of the lecture are as follows:
・How to describe the patients’s skin conditions and convey it to others properly
・How to distinguish ringworm from other disorders
・How to distinguish between benign mole and malignant lentigo with dermoscopy
・How to safely remove tick from the patient’s body
・The difference between heat rash and miliaria from dermatological perspective
Actually, the lecture was conducted in a very interactive manner, so eventually the registrars aggressively raised their hands and hurled questions at lecturers in the Q&A session.
Fortunately enough, it seemed that the “Rural Skills”, as a new departure, were able to get off a good start.
